Stephanie Zare scored the second goal for the Hoyas today in a 4-2 over Pittsburgh.
Oct. 21, 2007
Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University women's soccer team (11-5-0, 4-4-0) offense clicked on all cylinders early as the Hoyas rode a three-goal first half lead to a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers (6-9-1, 1-7-1 BE) this afternoon on North Kehoe Field. Freshman Ingrid Wells (Upper Montclair, N.J./Montclair) scored the eventual game-winner on a penalty kick and assisted on the first two Hoya goals.
Needing to respond after Friday's loss and in search of a huge three points in the conference standings, the Blue and Gray got things going early with goals by Sara Jordan (Indianapolis, Ind./North Central) and Stephanie Zare (Lake Bluff, Ill./Lake Forest) within the first 10 minutes. On the first goal, Wells passed the ball to Jordan in the penalty area, and the senior midfielder took it from there. With her back to the goal, Jordan created some space with a spin and unleashed a beautiful strike to the right corner for a 1-0 lead. Less than four minutes later, Wells gave the ball up to Zare, who hit a rocket from outside the penalty area into the right side of the net for a quick 2-0 score.
"The fans like these types of games," said Women's Soccer Head Coach Dave Nolan. "They enjoy the goals. Eight goals on Friday and six goals today make the crowd happy. But I like ugly games, the high-scoring ones tend to make me want to have a heart-attack at times. We score three early, they get two back, and then we're fighting at the end of the game to secure the win."
A foul late in the half set up a penalty kick situation, and Wells scored her second goal in as many games. The freshman finished with six points for the weekend and is now tied for the team lead in goals with five, while leading the team in assists (7) and points (17).
"Ingrid's a special player," Nolan said. "She's going against bigger players and she's not only being marked by her girl, but with her performances, she's drawing a second and third defender with her at times. This, of course, frees up some of other forwards and with the depth we now have due to getting healthy, we're scoring goals."
Pittsburgh continued to fight and crept to within a goal in the second half, 3-2, after Jennifer Kritch scored off a nifty one-touch from Liz Carroll. However, Georgetown wouldn't let a repeat performance from earlier this weekend happen again. Freshman Daryn Towle (Santa Monica, Calif./Marymount) provided the Hoyas with the spark they needed when she scored a lovely goal, beating Pittsburgh goalkeeper Morie Kephart to the far left corner. Lindsey Appezzato (Davis, Calif./Davis) and Towle tangled with a handful of Panther defenders in front of the goal and a nudge of the ball from Appezzato allowed Towle the space to come away with the ball. With that, Appezzato collected her first collegiate assist.
"We wanted to get some fresher legs in there today," Nolan said. "Playing five games in 10 days will take a toll on a team and even our bench players struggled at times today, they got us that fourth goal."
Senior goalkeeper Jade Higgins earned her first win of the season in goal for the Hoyas.
The Hoyas' next game will be on Tuesday, October 23 at South Florida. The game is a makeup for the postponement in Tampa, Fla. back on October 5. The game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start at the USF Soccer Stadium.
